Another glorious day for golf today at Newmachar Swailend where the greens were reported as “excellent”. Some of the scoring was pretty good too with Dunes GC professional Kris Nicol taking top honours with a sub par 66 followed closely by Chris Gilbert and Dylan Smith on 68.
Class 1 Handicap winner was Deeside’s Morty Denholm with a good 76, which was net 68 less his 8 handicap. That was three shots better than his nearest challenger.
Class 2 Handicap was a closer affair with Ed McDonald’s 69 off 14 just one better than Jim Scott 81 (11) 70.
Have a look at the updated Order of Merit Tables here which show Chris Gilbert extending his lead in the scratch section over Stewart Finnie and Brian Ritchie. But remember, it is the points earned from the best 15 rounds over the season that will determine the winner.
